Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Really, at this point I'd rather him (Andres Galarraga) just go up, and if he hits the ball, hit it hard. Just telling a guy to put the ball in play doesn't always mean that much if it isn't hit that hard. I don't care if he pulls the ball four times each game because if he does that, chances are one of them will go very far." - Montreal Expos Manager Tom Runnells (The kind of hitting approach Galarraga should use) in USA Today Baseball Weekly (September 6-12, 1991)
